The star-studded film of the year is set for February 24th, and if you love celebrities, movies, red carpet gaffes and Hollywood trash-talking Trump, you’re going to want to tune in. Every year I make it a goal to see the majority of the Best Picture nominees, though I’m still working on it this year.

The big movies for the 2019 Oscars are The Favourite and Roma. They both have ten nominations. Roma is available to watch on Netflix, if you’re interested.

Other Best Picture nominees include Black Panther, BlacKKKansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, A Star is Born, and Vice.

I’m really excited for this year’s Oscars because of all the drama surrounding Kevin Hart, who won’t be hosting, and since there are a lot of interesting characters there this year, including Lady Gaga!

As you watch along to the Oscars that is inevitably going to be too long, play along with our exercise or drinking game.

Any time someone mentions Trump – 30 second plank or 1 sip

Hollywood is notoriously liberal. Will they be able to avoid talking about Trump for a few hours? Probably not. 

Every time Roma wins an award – 25 crunches or 1 sip

How many of its 10 nominations will it take home?

Every time The Favourite wins an award – 25 squats or 1 sip

The Favourite and Roma are tied for most nominations–who will be victorious as the most awarded film of the night?

If anyone mentions Kevin Hart/the lack of host – 30 second wall-sit or 1 sip

Hart apologized for his past comments and received a lot of support. How will everyone handle it on the night in question?

If there’s a mistake in any of the announcements – Run in place for 2 minutes or 1 gulp of your drink!

Remember the notorious Moonlight-La La Land mixup? If it happens again, and we can only hope it doesn’t, get running.

During the in memoriam section – 15 Supermans or finish your drink!

The in memoriam section can go on for…awhile, but don’t let it go to waste. In 2018, Hollywood lost stars like Stephen Hillenberg, William Goldman, Stan Lee, Bill Daily, Burt Reynolds, Neil Simon, Craig Zadan and more.
